    THANKS! You can give 505 forks if you want to, greg. It's just that GR will only record the FIRST 5. Stingy, huh? But I'll know that you meant 6 forks for this dish. You have my mouth watering to make this one and perhaps it will happen tonight! I agree with you about chicken needing a bit of a "pick me up" flavor-wise. Thanks again and I hope we talk again really soon, my friend.

    We made this last night. This is a MUST TRY!! The kids loved it. Turns flavorless boring chicken into a tender, juicy, flavorful dish! I'll be adding this to the regular family favs. Can we give SIX forks? I would!

    I like it! Interesting flavor combo, one dish, stovetop, simple, and quick. Sounds like a great week night dish. It's going on my menu for next week. Five.

    Yes! Chicken is absolutely tasteless without a flavorful recipe, isn't it dave? Thanks so much for your five and Happy Easter.
